Aguilar's 1st HR, in 100th AB, lifts Brewers over Cards 5-4


In the second inning of Thursday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers at Busch Stadium, right fielder Stephen Piscotty came up lame at first base with an apparent hamstring injury after running out a ground ball.

Jesus Aguilar's first major league home run broke a seventh-inning tie, leading the Milwaukee Brewers over the banged-up St. Louis Cardinals 5-4 on Thursday night.

Tommy Pham has been called up and will likely make some starts in St. Louis' outfield, especially with Dexter Fowler scheduled for an MRI on his shoulder.

Broxton was a triple shy of the cycle for the Brewers, including an RBI double in the third and a home run in the fifth against Adam Wainwright that tied the score 4-4. Manager Craig Counsell used five pitchers in relief, with the bullpen combining for 4 1/3 innings of scoreless, three-hit baseball.


Oliver Drake (2-0) picked up his second win of the season, and Neftali Feliz earned his eighth save.

The Brewers were plenty active at the plate, notching fifteen hits, including four from Keon Broxton.

Travis Shaw and Hernan Perez each had three hits, with Shaw adding to his team-leading RBI total with a pair of runs driven in. Molina followed with a run-scoring single for a 4-3 lead. Aguilar had registered just one hit in his last 22 plate appearances, but he deposited an 86 miles per hour slider from Matt Bowman over the fence in left field to give Milwaukee a 5-4 lead. Grichuk made a leaping catch against the wall to rob Jonathan Villar of a leadoff extra base hit in the third.

The Cardinals also announced that infielder Jhonny Peralta, who has been on the 10-day disabled list since April 17 with an upper respiratory condition, will begin an injury rehabilitation assignment today with Palm Beach (A). He walked three but did strike out six opposing batters, and his ERA now stands at 2.86 on the year.
